Hot roasted potatoes in this healthy kale salad recipe wilt the kale just enough to make it tender. Bacon and blue cheese layer on smoky, salty flavors to stand up to the flavor of the kale. Serve this salad with steak or chicken.

Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 pound
    Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 6 cups
    kale, stems removed, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons
    cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons
    crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons
    minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon
    honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoon

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Toss potatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread out on a large baking sheet (reserve the bowl). Roast the potatoes, stirring once or twice, until tender and browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
